In the letter addressed to President Guillermo Lasso, the representative of the organization Service, Peace and Justice described the situation in that country as serious and regretted the existence of fatalities and injuries during the last weeks. Repression by arms is not the way to solve problems, on the contrary, it generates more violence, it does not contribute to the solution of conflicts, he said.

I remind you that the government must be at the service of the people and not the other way round. Peace is not a gift, it is a process, and to build it it is necessary to reestablish the balance of coexistence and mutual respect, he added.

For the last 18 days, social organizations, peasants, women, workers and students have been participating in marches called by the Confederation of Indigenous Nationalities of Ecuador to demand concrete answers to problems posed to the Executive.

Demonstrators demand a larger budget for education and health, job creation, lower fuel prices and effective measures against insecurity, among other issues.

Lasso and Interior Minister Patricio Carrillo announced the authorization of the progressive use of force to repress participants in the protests, who are victims of violence by uniformed officers.
